Tesco & Dunnes have the same. They've been 3 for a fiver for several years now on the run up to Easter in most supermarkets and shops.

indeed, a simple search in this forum shows several supermarkets were at this price. Tesco even had thorntons eggs at that price at a reasonable weight.

What was "medium" 20 years ago is now smaller.

not gonna get 3 "what" exactly, give example weights. You do easily get them cheaper but I suspect you would then maybe cop out and say "oh I meant bigger ones" rather than admit you were wrong.

But as I said a simple search will show what they should drop to.

Rule of thumb is that a full size solid bar is typically about 50g, things like creme eggs, wispas, aero, kit kat being a bit less. They do not actually have to declare the weight on the packet if a bar is under 50g, and on many bars they do not explicitly declare the weight -but it can often be worked out from the nutritional info. e.g. is might say 300kcal per 100g, and 100kcal per bar, meaning it is 33.3grams -yet nowhere on the pack does it say 33g.

In dealz most stuff is 1.50 so easier to compare, I would want to be getting 130g+ for 1.50, unless it is higher value stuff.

Years ago a "medium" egg meant 2 full size bars and an egg of about 100g. Todays medium would have been called small years ago.

Weights vary between 123g and 162g. At those weights I doubt any would have two fullsize bars.

It's a featured advert that I saw online. It's all the standard Medium Nestle/Mars/Cadburys eggs.
These are the size eggs.(Not the Dunnes add!
